was interviewed by the fbi, but it's not clear if broadwell has been questioned and if she will be. a u.s. official said petraeus was never a target of an investigation and that a tip about an affair led to that probe. now, general petraeus was scheduled to testify next week about the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. now what happens now that he's gone? suzanne kelly is in washington with that part of this big story. >> susan, as washington reels from the announcement not only that david petraeus is stepping down from the post, but also from the admission he was having an extramarital affair, a u.s. official has said the counter intelligence unit was investigating a tip that he was having an affair because they needed to determine whether there was a potential security risk. the official telling cnn there was no suggestion that the fbi was investigating petraeus for any possible wrongdoing. now, if there were an official investigation focused on the cia director, that would have been something that the congressional oversight committees would have been briefed on. it's a matter of s

is in it for me, it's what is in it for us. it reflects the fact that it was a wig segment of the voting population with their attitudes and perspectives. it will be interesting if those folks stay progressive if they'll continue those attitudes as they get married and have children and do they evolve in a different way. did they do continue to have that at to you, it will have an interesting impact on our country. >> gavin: it's interesting because the millennial generation is slightly bigger than the baby boom generation, and its impact is profound. you're right, it's a more empathetic generation, suggesting with gay marriage, drug issues etc. >> gay marriage, climate change, a bunker bunch of these issues as a prerogative is pretty interesting. a lot of people are talking about this election as function of a demographic change. certainly that is an element of it, right, but it me there is a bigger issue goingen. part of it the republican party has big trust brand problem. losing a state like montana north dakota, month in, indiana those are seats that should have been automatic winds.

[ applause ] >> tonight in this election you, the american people reminded us while our world has -- our road has been hard and journey been long we have picked ourselves up. we have fought our way back. we know in our hearts that for the united states of america the best is yet to come. >> jon: that the way election night ended. so considering it all, jim, after more than a year long campaign, it's over? did it fit the media narrative? >> it ended the way the media wanted it to end. the feeling perspective let's go back to july 10th, 2004 when evan thomas of newsweek said media support for democrats, quote, maybe 15 points. on october 17th, 2004 he amended that to five points. he won by two points. >> jon: you think if media were absolutely fair, mitt romney would be president? >> let's let the viewers judge for themselves. let's go to the media centers where i found those quotes and other quotes from other reporters up including jim of politico most of the people he met in journalism vote democratic. then you might make the argument helped the president a great deal. >> i'm going to have to
were very strategic in their use of their resources. and they had a lot -- he raised about a billion dollars. they were very strategic. obama's campaign can buy a television advertisement at the lowest rates possible. television stations, local television stations selling the ads want to make as much money as possible. they do not have to offer low rates to the super pac's. they can charge the super pac's as much as the market will bear. because of the saturation, they in fact did. many of the super pac's were paying 10 or 15 times more for 30 seconds and the obama campaign was. so i do not want to say that -- it would be satisfying to say money did not have any eject, so despite the billions that were poured in and people trying to manipulate elections -- the citizens united campaign, there was an employer who stapled a sample ballot to workers' paychecks. to get an idea of how he wanted them to vote. there were a lot of employers who did that. mitt romney encouraged employers to do that. in terms of citizens united, first of all going back to the earlier case, i will never agree wi
in. president obama used a campaign-style white house appearance today to declare that while he's willing to compromise with the republicans his bisque position has not changed. >> obama: as i said before, we can't just cut our way to prosperity. if we're serious about reducing the deficit we have to combine spending cuts with revenue that means asking the wealthiest americans to pay a little more in taxes. on tuesday night we found out that the majority of americans agree with my approach. and that includes democrats independents, and a lot of republicans. >> eliot: mr. obama also said that he planned to meet with speaker of the house john boehner and other congressional leaders at the white house next year along with business and labor leaders. the president made it clear that even while talks were under way he wanted the house to move quickly to pass a middle class tax freeze that has already cleared the senate. >> obama: let's not wait. even as we're negotiating the broader deficit reduction package. let's extend the middle class tax cuts right now. >> eliot: for his part sp
any further. >> let's go to this part of the room. let's go here. >> u.s. news and world report. it seems the coalition was unable biunique elements of this election. he have the bain background. how will they try to recreate the coalition? >> great question. a year ago, i would have said -- he ran poorly among blue collar and older whites. even with paul ryan on the ticket, a 60% of seniors voted for romney. in the long run, i think those red states are problematic for democrats. look at north carolina. in north carolina or virginia, obama's numbers among blue- collar whites are unbelievably low. they are in the high-20's or 30's. in the long run, i do think there is this pattern. the sun belt will be more important than the west about. they do have the incredible ability to hang on to -- the shift will be to states that have the same social forces of rising diversity and rising education levels. >> we have a slight disagreement. obama did well among these groups in 2008. democrats do well among white blue-collar voters in the midwest. there are union presidents and other thing

states can use this as more opportunity to back out. >> in terms of more federal money, people said to us live all been talking about how there is a big squeeze. and 11 people feel like the money the department provided was not enough. there needs to be more resources. i do not see it happening. >> let's go right here. >> your discussion on the fiscal cliff is the conventional wisdom. they will find a way to build the bridge. i was the discussion yesterday where an alternative was presented. these numbers were saying that the fiscal cliff offers members of congress very difficult choices. nobody wants to vote for cuts to programs and entitlements and increasing taxes. there is a growing group that just my support growing over. they have the opportunity to do some positive things for their constituents who are injured in the fall. i'm curious if that makes any sense to you? >> begins to be january 1, 2013. rates are reset to where they were before the tax cuts. the amt reminas. all they suddenly have a lot of revenue. you can spend money. thee you get there, and t president has made it cle
